Dealing With Pride

1. Ask God to show you areas in your life where you have been prideful. (Psalm 139:23-24) 

2. As God shows you areas, confess your pride to God and ask for His forgiveness. (1 John 1:9).

3. Avoid asking God to humble you– His Word tells us we should humble ourselves. (1 Peter 5:6).

4. Ask God to give you a holy hatred for pride, and what it produces in your life.  (Proverbs 8:13)

 5. Ask God to give you a desire not to take credit for things you do.  (Matthew 6:3)

 6. Ask God to show you ways you can serve others. (Philippians 2:4)

7. Think more about God and less about yourself. Do this by regularly studying about the goodness and greatness of God. (Psalm 71:19)

9. Promote God’s reputation and not your own. Find satisfaction in Him and not in your own accomplishments. (Psalm 10:4)

10. Our war against pride is never over…always put pride to death and put on humility. (Proverbs 15:33)
